GBA Editor | Posted in General Questions on

I’m glad to see broad roof overhangs down under to protect Oz homes from rain.

    Are you starting a thread on Unintended or
    Unexpected Consequences?

    John, is that a legitimate error or does the concrete guy have a sense of humor?

    Robert, I wonder if the Australians design their walls to dry in both directions?

  4. Riversong | | #4

    You mean both upwards and downwards? Perhaps they should have built like this?

  5. Riversong | | #5

    Or like this?

    I guess we could call this thread "unintended consequences".

    Building wide roof overhangs results in widespread flooding.

    Or maybe not.

    Or how about:
    "Entropy 101".
    Wide overhangs result in widespread flooding, trouble for the steel industry, the consumer and the global economy.
    Or are we laying charges against the wrong suspect? Maybe it isn't "wide overhangs" after all.
